Back in the (Musical) Saddle Again

An old friend, half-jokingly, asked me the other day whether or not I had slipped into some sort of mid-life crisis, what with all of the old music stuff I posted here recently. I just smiled. I'm too busy looking forward to be in a mid-life crisis (besides, I intend to download my consciousness into a robot at some point, so I hope to live to 1,000, meaning I'm nowhere near mid-life yet!).

Nope. I just happened to be in a musical mood because I'm planning my return to the music career. Well, "career" is a stretch (don't worry, Linda - I'm not going back to playing gigs for $100 a night), but I've got some unfinished business to take care of - namely, an album's worth of songs that were half-finished when Julia's Rain broke up in 1998. I hauled out the tapes the other day, and had a listen, and the songs are as good as I remembered, so I'll be putting a band together this summer to finish the project under the name "The Spartacus Union". The album will be titled "Strange Deliverance".

Coming to the Internet and a record store near me sometime in fall, 2006. I'll provide an update when it's done.

Back in the musical saddle again.

Time to tune up the Les Paul!

This is cool. And I'm not just saying that.

Which part - the music, or the plan to download my consciousness? :-)
